Though, the whole world has been mourned over the death of legendary gadget ‘i’con – Steve Jobs, there are many scammers who are handling the situation only for their personal gains and that too deceitfully. Sickeningly, scammers over Facebook are trying to earn money by claiming that Apple is giving away 50 free iPads in memory of Steve Jobs.

Such scammers are trying to ride over the sentiments of Facebook users and inciting them to click on the link attached with “Free iPad in memory of Steve”.

Apparently, the link, shorten by bit.ly, also maintains the combination of emotional words “restin-peace-steve” to foul users. So what’s fun for scammers in this ? Once click, it will lead you to a brief survey and urge to fill in order to claim your iPad. Interestingly, the survey has been developed with the auto detection of your IP location to adjust the survey language accordingly and again the maximum exposure.

However, if you don’t click on any of the survey, it will automatically play a message to encourage you to take the survey but fails to authorize any possibility of free iPad. Rather, it gets reduce to an “exclusive reward” or probably any similar “surprise gift”.

Scammers are using the trick to generate more revenue for their clients by making you visit to website or e-comm portal supported by affiliate program. This way, scammers are generating more traffic and, probably, many of them but the product or opt for the promoted service on that page.

What so ever, they will gain benefit and earn money only at the cost of your time. And, at the end, you will not be wining any iPad – not even any iPod.

So, please beware from all such dirty tricks and stay away from miscreants who can drive you crazy by tempting you for such duplicitous promotions.
